1 star off for weight & size......

Oh my so very many photographs & tidbits of information on elephants. The ones of that famous A-Hole circus star who hurt his elephants, Gunther, Gebel... others of how the tricks the elephants did hurt them....

The history of the importance elephants in Asian history, elephants swimming (do you know they swim better & faster than they walk), giving birth (they all help to remove the birth sac), a female dying (they stayed with her & then waited in silence).....

That elephants make a noise so low on the sound register that humans are unable to hear it.

The Busch Circus in Hamburg, had a huge water slide for the elephants to slide down into their pool.

The mass murder of elephants for ivory, trophies, & to stop the destruction of vegetation.

Elephants in religion & architecture... The gate to the Berlin Zoological gardens is beautiful.

An amazing book, that nearly killed me lifting it from the bottom shelf! ( )
